The eagles are either golden oak or my "house" stain, which is just the bottoms of all the cans mixed with honey and ipswich pine stain.

The book is just poly over natural butcher block countertop.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Great job Joe. Amazing how well the cnc can cut that out. Are you guys using one single thick piece of wood ?

Thanks John, I've got a long way to go! 🙂
Rick, that's only 5x7 and a little over 3/4" thick. Hard to judge size with no references.

I never would have believed that , as I thought it looked much larger . I’m pretty amazed at the quality of the text in such a small piece .
Can’t wait to try mine in a couple years when I get it going

John,
I hate to be dumb, I am new to woodworking and CNC, but how do you sand out the witness marks and burrs.

Good sharp bits and a low stepover on the finish cut eliminate most of it. A small brass or wire brush helps, along with a sanding mop on a drill and a set of scrapers too. Plus there's the fact that just applying stain will make a lot of the fuzzies lay right down. Hardwoood cuts cleaner than soft. You just gotta experiment with what works with each piece cause they are all different.

Thatís what I was expecting, a learning curve to see what wood works best and with what kind of bits .

I donít know what this wood is, and Iím thinking it was expensive to begin with just to get this project started .
The Last Supper is done on what appears to be the same width as the table . A guy from Calgary Alberta works in the oil patch up North , but wants to get a cnc business going .
Looks like heís got the gist of it
